Breakfast RTE on Sunday, 11/9?

Looks like this Sunday is supposed to be pretty nice. Anyone up for an early breakfast?

I'm riding the Polar Bear but I may be up for an early spin. What direction are you heading?

Re: Breakfast RTE on Sunday, 11/9?

Several riders have told me about the Blue Colony Diner (www.bluecolonydiner.com) in Newtown, CT. It's right off exit 10 of I-84. I was thinking around 8:30 or 9:00. I have no idea how crowded it gets. Does that sound good or any other ideas?

That's a little far for me (2+ hours on an empty stomach? I'd never make it!!)

I have a client meeting Sunday morning anyway - Enjoy!!!!

Get off? Nothing too serious, I hope. Where and how? Were you a victim of "wet leaves in road" syndrome?

Re: Breakfast RTE on Sunday, 11/9?

Sad to hear, but I'm glad to hear you're OK. Heal up...

I'd love to do a RTE sometime with the guys here. At this point it's looking like it'll be spring time!

Re: Breakfast RTE on Sunday, 11/9?

Dang Jim... I just met you and the bike and you're already down and out? Sheesh... Well guess it's better now when the good riding weather's heading down into the south lands. Take it easy, get well. If there's anything I can do to help, parts, tools, assistance, a run to Gengras (i'm close) let me know. If I can swing it I'm in.

Back on topic.

Breakfast is my meal of the day and I usually don't get it the way I like it. Any time I can get out and do a breakfast run I'm on it like stink on rotting eggs. If the crew here decides to go I'll do my best to make the run. I can't commit due to work commitments that may or may not interfere. Unfortunately it's a DR test that inherently has unknowns. If all goes well the AM of Sunday might just be clear.

Re: Breakfast RTE on Sunday, 11/9?

Once we're there, whos to say you came in a cage?

Unfortunate but this day isn't done yet. I'll be on conference calls starting at 8:30 tomorrow morning... No tellin what the night, testing or anything else will bring. Hopefully it'll be a bit more uplifting than some of the stupid problems we ran across today.

To those going, enjoy the ride, be safe!

I guess this is going to be a wash, seems like no one can make it. Have to try again in a few months.
